Stainless steel plate heat exchanger is an efficient and compact heat exchange equipment. It was first developed as a continuous low-temperature sterilizer in the 1880s, and began to be used in the food industry in the 1920s. Because stainless steel plate heat exchangers have some unique features in manufacturing and use. Therefore, stainless steel plate heat exchangers have been widely used in petroleum, chemical, light industry, electric power, metallurgy, machinery, energy and other industrial fields.
In refrigeration technology, stainless steel plate heat exchangers are indispensable refrigeration equipment, such as condensers, evaporators, regenerators, and intermediate plate coolers.It not only accounts for more than 50% of the entire refrigeration unit in terms of weight, volume and metal consumption, but also has a significant impact on refrigeration performance.Therefore, strengthening the heat transfer of refrigeration heat exchangers, reducing weight and volume, and reducing metal consumption have always been the development direction of refrigeration technology.
A new type of all-welded stainless steel plate heat exchanger has been applied in refrigeration technology and has shown strong development potential.
